Charming Christmas Designs for a Cute & Quirky Christmas

The items I have chosen to show on today’s post are from the indy shop of Illustrator, Designer & Maker Lucy Farfort. The first images are from the collection of charming Christmas cards. Each greeting card starts life as a freehand drawing, which is then transferred to a computer for colour and texture to be added; while this brings the designs to life it does nothing to distract from the charm of Lucy’s original drawings. Each card is A6 in size, printed on thick glossy paper that is hand cut and layered onto a coloured board that contrasts perfectly with the design. These high quality, hand-finished greeting cards are finally co-ordinated with a white or cream envelope and cello-wrapped. I love the colours, characters and detail that has been produced in each of these designs, there is a real sense of autumn and winter, which is a perfect fit for this November day.

If you fall in love with Lucy’s style you can also grab a 2012 calendar, beautifully illustrated month to month with cute characters set in a charming world. Calendars are A4 in size and bound with white satin ribbon. The print run on the calendars is very limited so be quick if you want one.
